View Full Version : IV Breeding

How do you breed for good IV's? Are good IV's passed down or something? And how does Ditto fit into it?

Hopefully that helps you.

How do I get better IVs?
A Pokemon’s IVs are completely random, but you CAN influence IVs through breeding. A Pokemon will inherit 3 IVs from its parents (which stats pass down their IVs, and which parent they are passed down from, is chosen at random), and the other 3 stats will have random IVs. If you breed parents with good IVs, and you are patient, you will eventually get a baby with very good stats. To ensure that you have a better chance of passing down good IVs, if possible, you can replace one of the parents with a hatchling of the same gender if you find that the hatchling has better IVs.

The Ditto/Everstone trick is for natures rather than IVs.

For the most part, I think its worth it.
It took a long time, but I bred a Trapinch that's just right. It might not be perfect in terms of IV's, but it's pretty nice.
After all, I had over 120 of its brothers and sisters to compare it to. > <
